Bourbon clerk won't issue driver's licenses Thursday

August 8, 2012 

The Bourbon County Circuit Court Clerk's office will not issue driver's licenses on Thursday so software and cameras can be installed to provide Kentucky's new licenses.

Other operations of the circuit clerk's office will not be affected, and the office will be open all day Thursday. Driver's licensing operations will resume Friday, and the new license will be available to Bourbon County residents.

The new licenses have multiple layers of security features, all linked to one another, to foil counterfeiters.

Those features include a digital watermark imperceptible to the human eye; bank note-level fine line printing; improved dual-side lamination for greater tamper resistance and durability; and a hologram with a single-color, ultraviolet "ghost" image.
